Capabilities

At OAASIS, we provide our clients with a reliable source of PPE and MRO equipment. Often the equipment we supply falls into a client’s operational expenditure (OPEX) as an industrial consumable item. We can tailor-make our flexible solutions so they are suitable for both capital expenditure (CAPEX) and OPEX supply. Our products and solutions span many divisions, a full list of which can be viewed on our Products page.

Our intelligent internal systems combined with our services and facilities sets the bar high for the extent of OAASIS’ capabilities. To ensure the smooth running of our business, OAASIS uses an intelligent ERP system throughout the company. Our ERP system is used at every stage of an order to allow collaboration between teams across the world through access to shared information and stock of DistributionNOW companies. As part of the industrial distribution giant, DistributionNOW, we have access to thousands of additional product lines and a truly global supply chain with extensive resources and capabilities.
